It can be upsetting to buy something that doesn’t last a long time, but with diapers it’s almost depressing. I am paying HOW MUCH for something that is literally meant to go in the garbage? Ugh! When you need so many so often, a little bit of savings can go a long way. Luckily, with a little bit of research, it’s easy to find bargains.
There are so many great options with Amazon. The huge variety of diapers is one of the perks of the website. Often you can find packs in the “new” section that are extremely cheap! While the shipping can be more than the diapers themselves, it usually still turns out to be a great deal. Amazon also has the Prime option. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you will also be eligible for free shipping and extra discounts on diapers. There is also the Amazon Mom membership (three months free!) where you can purchase diapers with an additional 20 percent off, plus free shipping!
Diapers.com can be a little pricier than other sites, but if you keep an eye out for the online coupons, you can find some pretty good deals. Shipping is free for orders more than $49 so you will probably want to order multiple items. Do be careful before ordering diapers in bulk if you have not tried the brand before, as not all babies tolerate all diapers the same. Right now diapers.com has a discount on newborn, size 1 and 2 diapers, and generally has similar offers.
Target store brand diapers can be as cheap as around $.15 per diaper, and there are plenty of online deals. Shipping is free for orders $50 or more, so again, stocking up on a couple items online can be easier and cheaper than heading to the store. There are also plenty of online exclusive coupons and deals. For example, right now Target is giving away free $5-15 gift cards with the purchase of select Up and Up (the store brand) products.
This site is great because the free shipping starts much lower than most websites. Orders of $35 or more qualify for free shipping, so you can buy here frequently. Drugstore.com has tons of coupons, you can use other coupons on top of those, and if you sign up for “auto-order” you can qualify for 10 percent off future orders.
Baby Cheapskate is not just for diapers, but it does have plenty of diaper deals and advice on shopping for kids. It is a great blog site that also provides lots of reviews. Taking a quick scroll through this site every couple days can be really worth your while. It is a quick place to see a variety of sales, including both diaper brands and store sales that carry baby diapers.
